Rowdies Re-Sign Midfielder Zach Steinberger for 2021
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -The Tampa Bay Rowdies have re-signed midfielder Zach Steinberger to a one-year deal.
Steinberger, 28, was a fan favorite during the 2019 and 2020 seasons. During his career with the Rowdies, Steinberger has made 35 appearances, 25 as starts, with five goals and six assists.
On the field in 2020, Steinberger made only one goal, but that goal came in the Eastern Conference Final and was essential in securing a win.
"Zach has been an integral part of moving the club forward the past two years, and I am delighted he will be able to continue building on all his hard work to date," said Rowdies Head Coach Neill Collins. "Zach's hard work was rewarded with excellent performances in the playoffs and, of course, who can forget his fantastic goal in the Eastern Conference Final. I hope to see more like that in 2021."
Steinberger played his college career at Butler University, while also appearing for the Michigan Bucks in the Premier Development League at the same time. After college, he broke into professional soccer when he was drafted eighth overall with the Houston Dynamo in 2015.
"We're building something special here in Tampa Bay, and I am very grateful to be a part of such a great organization representing an even greater fan base," Steinberger said.
More new and returning players will be announced in the coming weeks. The Rowdies roster now stands at (19) players.
